More American Muslims guilty of joining the Islamic State. America is crawling with them. And Obama wants to take in 100,000 immigration jihadists from Europe.

“Minnesota man is 3rd to plead guilty to conspiring to join Islamic State group; 5 face trial,” FOX News, September 17, 2015

MINNEAPOLIS – Another Minnesota man has admitted he was part of a plot to travel to Syria to join the Islamic State group.

Twenty-year-old Zacharia Yusuf Abdurahman pleaded guilty Thursday to one count of conspiracy to provide material support to a foreign terrorist group — specifically the Islamic State group.

Authorities say he was part of a group of friends in Minnesota’s Somali community who met secretly to plan different ways to travel to Syria. Abdurahman said he and some of the group’s members took buses to New York last November and tried to travel overseas. He then participated in a plan to get fake passports.

Abdurahman is the third Minnesota man to plead guilty in connection with the plots. Five others face a February trial.

    Pam, you ought to understand that the problem of ‘joinees’ is not as serious as that of the ‘returnees’

    Yes, many American Jihadists who have gone abroad to kill the kufar have returned – and the scary thing is that they are roaming freely in the States

    The authority either does not know of their identity, or pretends to not know anything

    • Roger

      Wow, I bet Pam didn’t know any of that secret information. What kind of PC BS is joinees, returnees, goodies, badies. They are all bad and are here to take us down.

  • Betty4440

    best thing to do if they decide to leave. up you leave you can never return to the USA. plain and simple.

    • Po Tato

      Do not forget … they have American citizenship

      And as Americans they have the right to come back, and many have!

      • dad1927

        Not to Canada. You jihad they kill your citizenship

          Donald will fix that.

    The discrepancy scale of the governance of the US-EU regime, it’s judiciary system, constitution & people is staggering. Jihadists Isis get supported to be the new power in the middle east by the US-EU regime, while Russia wants to fight it & national or regional tolerance, indifference & complicity from the US-EU public is applied to Islam globally.

    Countries that want to welcome Islamic refugees are not prepared to turn the refugees into non-Islamists & the Islamist refugees can stay in the camps. We need a new world order where Islamists are not supported under no circumstances. Assad can step down. We need a competent leader to lead the government in Syria. Putin is interested in working with the Syrian government & military & could aid in the transition, while adapting to Globalfirm: human rights, ecology, atheism, globalism, English & animal rights, also in Russia & Iran.

    The global green parties that should be opposed to nuclear waste production probably all support the Iran deal. We should judge global governing by what they don’t do as much as what they do. The US-EU regime supports militarily dangerous nuclear waste production in Iran, supports & arms Isis, protects, Boko haram, Al-Shabab, Al Kaida, arms & finances Islamist tyrannies. They don’t work to ban or expose Islam & don’t support my approach Globalfirm. People shouldn’t follow their example.

    The Islamist US-EU regime robbed our freedom of speech, protects our enemies, Jihadists, armed them, finances them & now need Muslim migrants as bodyguards & oppressive army against few awoken citizens to cement & protect their crimes, lies & deception against atheists, citizens & humanity on a whole. Our armed forces have been incapacitated.

    To those who surveil this website, are new to this topic, have been mislead by pro-Islam indoctrination or are potential apostates from theism:
    1.: Islam is NOT a universal, human rights respecting ideology.
    2.: Humanity needs to come to terms with Muhammad’s indefinite command to sadism through Jihad-terror & Sharia-tyranny against atheists & with Muhammad emulated pederasty, mythology found enslavement of Africans, crucifixions, torture, child genital mutilation & sadist halal-slaughter. Muhammad indefinitely commands to ‘slay atheists wherever they are found’ in the Koran. Therefore no one should be allowed to promote Islam nor himself as Islamic. Creating a proactive culture of discrimination against Islam protects human rights sustainably in the long term militarily, to establish the rule of ethics: human rights, ecology, atheism, globalism, English & animal rights. 
    3.: Humanity needs to learn that the genocide of Armenian non-Muslims in the 1. world war & genocide of non-Muslims in west & east Europe (Germany, France, Poland, Ukraine…) in world war 2 were participated & led by Jihadi-‘Nobel prize-winner’-Arafat’s uncle who was appointed ‘Grandmufti of Jerusalem’ Amin El-Husseini who was stationed as General in Smyrna after joining the Armenian genocide by the Turks, ‘the Ottoman empire’ joined by Germany & later formed the Muslim Nazi SS-division while organizing the slaughter of non-Muslims with the Nazis. After the war he lived in France.

    Thank Lutheran family services for our new jihaders. They really don’t give a damn who these people kill.

    • Krissy Rock

      I would love to meet this person. Maybe in their culture women fear men. But I as a women can easily hurt him in many ways. Women can easily defend themselves when we have proper training. I have no fear of these people just because they are the male gender. After he will be wearing a shirt I fear your wife.

      • Roger

        Wow, I have no fear now, Krissy is going to kill them all.

            Hit home didn’t it. Don’t get your little panties in a wad it wasn’t meant to be insulting.

      • donemyhomework

        Damned straight, with the proper training. And I’m absolutely for all women to be trained in self defense. Especially the one strike disable kind. Those bozos run in packs.

      dad1927, You’re right about that. I thought Lutheran was just another denomination until I was listening to a Lutheran ‘minister’ who was a female trans gender (not sure if the female was before or after…no matter). They apparently are the most liberal of all. She kept stressing that other trans genders (or whatever) go to a church that thinks like they do. I thought ‘how about going to the Bible and read what God has to say?’ about what is expected of his followers.

    Moslems are not seeking refuge, but infiltrating the West. Burn your Koran or return to the land of Allah

  • Roger

    Sooner or later we’re going to have to face these guys. Hussein Obama is not bringing them over here for a vacation.

  • Stephen Honig

    Black scumbags to black Muslim scumbags. What’s the difference?

    • donemyhomework

      And the thing that makes me smile is their ignorance of history.

  • Linda Hampton

    Man without God are nothing more than beasts who should be taken into the field and slain. Gods opinion not mine. In Islam we see this concept of man without matured to it’s fullest. When they find themselves in a culture that tries to limit their evil many must get get back to that place to regain what they have lost. This leads them to radicalization. They so strongly desire this that their passion is evident and growing. That’s why they love Sharia law, it is the vehicle to provide what they want so desprerately. Be just as concerned about Muslim men coming to this country as those leaving to fight with Isis. Their past culture has not taught them any of the rules civilized man has lived by for many years. Many will yearn for that system so they think of nothing else but getting back to a place where they cannot be told the the ugliest word of all NO!!!!!

  • donemyhomework

    Every Muslim is an enemy. That should be apparent to everyone by now.

    the white liberal fools of minnesota love the muslim keith ellison, and now they are shoveling more ot this cancer into their pasty-white midst. hubert humphrey was a fool, ellison is a fool, and the libs in minnesota are fools

  • Joy Beum

    Joining the enemy is treason. Hang em high. And while you’re at it, hang obama high for his treasonous acts!

    Islamoghettoites….. Figures

  • chuck_2012

    Some countries are quick to use the firing squad to dispatch treasonous citizens to set the example otherwise if the consequences are light there is no deterrence to this behavior. i fear the US will be overrun and unable to cope. Just look at europe who have thrown open the gates to the hordes! Once the vermin are well established there will be no turning back. Enoch Powell was a man with much foresight and saw the invasion of Britain for what it was…a takeover.
